A Distant Sadness

This Season 3 Intro tune brought, and continues to bring, tears to my eyes on multiple occasions. To me, it carries such a profound religious significance, even though it’s sung in Armenian. The translated lyrics:

A distant and familiar sadness calls to us
As if carried on the wind, like burning sand
Brothers and Sisters, away, you endure
Stranded on our own land
A memory etched into soul and skin
Leaves a scar that never heals.
Our family is strong, but scattered
Across the stars and fields
We will not abandon you
We will not forget you
We will return for you.
